" is next. >> john: good evening. i'm john fuglesang and tonight on "viewpoint," congressman paul ryan has presented a new version of the paul ryan budget but i'm calling it the agoraphobia budget because it is never leaving the house. we're joined by louise slaughter and alan grayson. the papal conclave begins in rome. we've got a big conclai. everyone agrees the cardinals should pick a vibrant young man in his early 70s. we're joined by progressive theologian john shelby spong. christmas is coming early for comedians because sarah palin is writing a book about christmas. birthday of liza minnelli, darryl strawberry, governor mitt romney and adult film star ron jeremy, three of whom are actually quite wholesome people. black smoke rome, cardinals the big vote. this is "vatican idol." >> john: good evening i'm john fuglesang and this is "viewpoint." democrats and house republicans agree, the nation needs a budget. house budget chair paul ryan led his committee to a podium where he unveiled his latest if you'll excuse the term path to prosperity. so just how are you going to do it this time
out there. paul ryan thinks, understandably because it is his plan, thinks it is the best one. >> the goal the republican majority is to get us on a path to balanced budget to put the debt crisis out and borrow time with the bond markets. yes, i believe the president won't pass our budget into law but let's get a down payment and get a good start on the problem. that to me a constructive bipartisan engagement can accomplish. bill: with that as a baseline kelly wright live at the white house this morning a lot of talk about a grand bargain, is that being revived, kelly? >> reporter: seems to be the case right now, bill, but reality while people are hoping for it including house speaker john boehner he is not very optimistic at all that democrats and republicans can achieve a grand bargain on the nation's budget deal. having said that, you will recall that the president did launch a major charm offensive, reaching out to republicans and democrats to find some common ground, in getting america's fiscal house in order. but some republicans remain skeptical about the president's si
a battle of the u.s. budget plans. senate democrats are set to unveil the answer to republican paul ryan's deficit cutting proposal today. >> announcer: you're watching "worldwide exchange" bringing you business news from around the globe. >>> it looks like a touch weaker for u.s. futures. look at the action. the dow did manage just at the end of the day to eke out small gains yesterday and that means it's been eight straight days of gains for this index. can it be nine? unusual. that would be the first time in 16 years in fact. meanwhile, perhaps some cautionary signs in the nasdaq which has had a weak couple of days stretch over here. s&p 500 also ended lower and looks to give up a point or two this morning as well. 1,545 is the level there. we're down 0.2 in the ftse global 300. a lot of action in the last half hour. we're seeing the euro weakening and general sense of risk coming off the table as we head closer to the weekend. key bond auctions today as well. italy going to market and we see italian stocks giving up .75 of 1%. spain down by two-thirds of 1%. ftse 100 message is consi
's not at the top of my list. and he's more interested -- i mean, he thinks that the paul ryan budget really hurts education and research. and he thinks if the government doesn't invest in education and research, then we will not be internationally competitive. the republicans have a completely different view. it's great that they're talking. i think it's wonderful that they're talking but they are at opposite ends philosophically about this. >>brian: the house says okay, there is the budget. you don't like it? the senate is going to do something interesting. they are going to have a budget. excited about it? a senate republican, snorkelly ayotte on -- senator kelly ayotte on greta van susteren's show last night. >> i'm glad the democrats are finally after four years going to do a budget in the senate but basically he's rendering himself irrelevant because his is going to come after the house puts forth his budget, after the senate does his budget. where is he on this issue? you'd think he would have a fiscal blueprint for the country. i'm on the budget committee and we'll be doing it without his
of a llck of seriousness, but it is beyond party. lou: house budget committee chairman paul ryan wrote of "wall street journal" op-ed today, laying out the republican 2014 budget plan. the right approacslices more than four and a half trillion dollars in spending and balance the budget within a decade and cuts tax rates while doing so. and it eliminates obamacare saving almost $2 trillion. that is not unlikely event. about as unlikely, in fact, as the democrats $1 trillion in new taxes. republicans and democrats obviously still as far apart as ever on the issues of spending and taxes. the president's budget proposal is still a mystery among but as press secretary today giving as something of an idea of just when that well overdue budget might finally be delivered by the white house. right now the president is focusing on meeting with democrats and repubcans on capitol hill. he has a lot to sell. fox news chief white house correspondent ed henry with our report. >> reporter: on the day republicans put their budget on the table, president obama arrived on capitol hill for the start of th
republicans. when you have speaker boehner, and paul ryan, saying, there is not an immediate debt crisis. what do you make of that? >> well, you know, i don't know, i think there is. i think it is a -- >> what is in it f them to say there isn't? >> you know, i can't get into their brain, i do not know what that is about. i do know $16.7 trillion debt, growing at the rate of the deficit every year, is a big problem. >> so they see, they say -- i want to stress it is a big problem, but not an immediate crisis, di does that take the urgency off of addressing it? >> no, it does not, what business, what investment and capital is looking for is they are looking for tre deccability -- predictabilitiy and stannability, which they see the movement going on in the debt itself, that offers neither. >> when you and the governors met with the president, a weeks ago, and you talk, i think you were knee deep in the whole sequestration debate. and president's warning that disaster is coming. >> that was the story. neil: and i thought to myself, governor, i mean, holy cow. however onurus the cuts would be, the
mate, paul ryan? certainly this young man can rile up the crowd, bring rock 'n' roll to the room. i mean, nothing gets him going like a good old bash of the democratic budget. >> they call their budget a foundation for growth. restoring the promise of american opportunity. but when you read it, you find that the vatican's not the only place blowing smoke this week. >> oh, zing. the catskill comedy clubs are lighting up the switch boards even as i speak. that kind of edge must be what mitch mcconnell was talking about when he joked about the gop contrast to the next round of democratic presidential hopefuls. >> don't tell me democrats are the party or the future when their presidential ticket for 2016 is shaping up to look like a rerun of the "golden girls." >> now it's good to see mitch mcconnell looking so pleased with himself, but it's worth remembering that the "golden girls" was immensely popular, rated in the top ten for six of its seven seasons. never mind. republicans do deserve a good laugh and the jokes today for plentiful. for example, donald trump. >> i've made over $8 bi
. congressman paul ryan taking in that budget cuts, as well. republicans put forth their own spending blueprint. response.e republican >> president obama and senate democrats say they want a balanced approach to our fiscal issues but their budget is ever balance, ever. taxesd they want to raise to fuel more spending. we know where this path leads, straight into a debt crisis. what does look like? first lenders will demand a higher interest rate. higher interest rates across the country will skyrocket on credit cards, mortgages, car loans. if interest rates rise debt payments will overwhelm all other items in the budget. the debt will overwhelm our economy. our finances will collapse. the safety net will unravel. the most honorable will suffer. you think this cannot happen here? just look at europe. we do not accept that future, not for our children and country. today we invite president obama to do with president clinton did, to work with republicans in congress to balance the budget. he can join in the efforts or he can choose the status quo. but he must choose. the american people deserve an
: the house budget committee chairman paul ryan says he thinks president's trip to capitol hill to meet with republicans is a good start but he thinks the bipartisan spirit needs to last through summer at least if any problems are going solved. >> gregg: a lot has been said about the approaching $17 trillion in debt. how much of that debt factoring into the negotiations if f at all? >> reporter: a little bit. we got one text from dick durbin what the president meant when he said there is no immediate debt prices. >> we need to put americans back to work. that is our first priority. deficit reduction is second priority and one is coupled with economic growth. so i think we can do both. make sure we have deficit reduction but don't cut too much too fast. >> reporter: the speaker boehner says known the national debt will reach crisis level but because of that uncertainty action should be taken now before it is too late. >> gregg: the president said it was $9 trillion as the crisis and now he says it is not even though it's approaching $17 trillion. >> heather: new reaction to a guilty verd
september. the budgets have gone out. paul ryan said here is mine. take a look. i balance it in ten years. chris van hollen on the democratic side said i have a better idea. in the house, we like to have our version and it will be $1.2 trillion in new taxes, 200 billion in stimulus. now, ladies and gentlemen, if you want a democratic house in 2014, that's what your country is going to look like. >> steve: later today the house of representatives is going to consider paul ryan's budget, plus they're going to consider five alternative budgets. one, patty murr i wouldn't he -- murray, the democrat senator from her state. the congressional black caucus', progressive caucus' budget, the republican study committee budget, which balances the budget in five years, not in ten years like paul ryan's. and chris van hollen's budget as well. meanwhile, the haggling continues in washington. the charm offensive of the president, he was being honest, wasn't he? he really was trying to charm the republicans. yet, brit hume was on last night with bret baier on his former program and said whether it worked,
. but to president obama, balancing the budget alone not his top priority. >> paul ryan is challenging you to come forward with a budget that also reaches balance. are you going to do that? >> no, my goal is not to chase a balanced budget just for the sake of balance. my goal is how do we grow the economy, put people back to work, and if we do that, we're going to be bringing in more revenue, if we've controlled spending and we've got a smart entitlement package, then potentially what you have is balance but it's not balance on the backs of, you know, the poor, the elderly, students who need student loans, family who have got disabled kids. that's not the right way to balance our budget. >> a major part of congressman ryan's plan relies on repealing the president's landmark health care law, a tactic house republicans have tried dozens of times before without gaining any traction. >> in terms of your budget, if you don't get it this year and the likelihood of getting it repealed this year is very, very low, does it blow a hole in your ten-year budget. >> sure because it calls for continuing the spe
guess that theory of evolution was echoed by paul ryan today. i want to play sound regarding once again the fiscal ideas that he touted in 2012, rearing their heads in 2013. let's take a listen. >> a balanced budget is a reasonable goal because it returns government to its proper limits and focus. when government overreaches, it doesn't just hurt our paychecks, it hurts our quality of life. we need to make room for community, for that vast middle ground between the government and the individual. >> you know, governor, the part of me that sticks out there is use of the word "community." i think that's been a priority that's lost specifically in the ryan budget insofar as it sort of tears asunder the social fabric. what do you think about him couching this in softer terms. >> i hate to say it, he has become an empty suit. this budget is a joke. for example, he says he would get rid of obama care, he would get rid of the benefits but kept the tax benefits to balance the budget, which isn't balanced. gives tax cuts to people that make a million dollars a year, cuts medicaid benefits, privat
does matter. but economic growth matters too. now, i had paul ryan on the program last night with his budget. he wants corporate tax reform as a pro growth measure. today at the business roundtable with the ceos, i ran a panel. you know what they were talking about? corporate tax reform as the single best pro growth measure. are we going get that out. house? can you all put some pressure on the president who sometimes says he's in favor of corporate tax reform? that would grow the economy and help solve the debt problem. >> larry, he actually said that when he came to meet with the house republicans today because dave camp raised this issue. mr. president there are some areas where we have common ground can we move forward on that. he mentioned the corporate tax rate to which the president said i agree the corporate tax rate is too high, we should lower it, make it flatter, fairer, that's something we can agree on and he said we have about a nine month window here, envelope he thought in order to make something like that happen. dave said let's do it now. the president said we can't d
spending up to near 25% of gdp. paul ryan in his proposal down to 19 1/2% over ten years. the gap between what barack obama is willing to do and what the republicans want to do is enormous. these are huge numbers and the idea that obama is going to do a compromise with them in the space in between i think is very unlikely, paul. >> paul: the other thing the president said this week that was interesting to republicans is, you need me, you need me to be able to sell and reform of medicare and medicaid and giant programs to democrats. they'll never go along with it otherwise. is he right about that? >> look, if he's right or he's wrong, he shouldn't say it. one shouldn't say those taunting things to a group one is trying to do negotiation with. and to dan's point, one of the problems i think that the president has had in the polls is that he seems very often now not to be telling the truth. and in ways that are apparent to the american people. terrible things will happen with the sequester, nothing bad happens. well, we are going to cancel white house tours. oh, by the way, i didn't cancel t

the reality of a paul ryan budget which is nothing more than a rehash of the failed agenda that the american people have already rejected. the republican budget continues to push harsh and unnecessary budget cuts that eliminate the safety net for millions of middle class americans. the american people don't want a budget that break ours promises to seniors by turning medicare into a voucher program or cuts investments that support job creation just for the sake of more budget busting tax cuts for the wealthiest taxpayers and corporations. yet my friends on the other side my friends continue pushing this approach in the name of deficit reduction, but their own leadership admitted we don't have a debt crisis in the country. the architect, congressman paul ryan, said we don't have a debt crisis. speaker boehner said it's not an immediate problem. why should we enact this budget while democrats have a balanced approach to protect the middle class. why should we pass a budget that gets 66% of its cuts from programs for people of low or moderate income. why should we pass a budget that cuts pell g

criticism of his colleague congressman paul ryan, the budget proposal and balance in a decade hinges on the repeal of obamacare. >> we believe that the law will collapse under its own weight and people will be eager as the details unfold. point two, the same point could be made for the senate budget, dead on arrival in the house, a trillion dollar tax increase with even more spending. >> reporter: ryan is of course the top republican on the house budget committee. the top democrat, democrat chris van holland made the case against the ryan budget proposal paying particular attention to the theoretical repeal of obamacare. >> their budget is built on a hoax. on one hand they say they will be in ten years, and on the other hand repeal obamacare, if you repealed it today the budget would not be balance. >> and part of the so-called charm offensive, congressman ryan says if anything big is going to get done that charm offensive needs to be sin veer and last until summer. harris. >> harris: a long time to charm. peter doocy, thanks very much. good to see you. as we told you earlier, senat

budget chairwoman patty murray last week. talk about that and how you think it compares to paul ryan's budget? >> there are two major differences and they certainly going different directions. paul ryan's budget balances in 10 years and is not raise taxes and patty murray's budget never balances and raises taxes $1.5 trillion over the next decade. what the democrats and patty murray are saying in addition to the 600 million-dollar tax increase that obama won in january and they trillion dollars of obamacare tax increases that most americans are unaware of and they don't know that they are getting and obama never talks about the trillion dollars in tax increases starting this year for obamacare. 1.6 and 1.5 is a 3 trillion-dollar tax increase over the next decade if the democratic budget passes and a never balances because they turn round and spend another -- hundreds of millions of dollars more on stimulus programs as well as other stuff. they do more spending with more taxes but with the brian budget does is very interesting for the republican future. it reforms entitlement, protect
he said. he said we've got billions of dollars in paul ryan's budget over here. i said no, no. i'm talking about this budget. you claim you're not scoring as an increase in spending $1.2 trillion? that you allowed to occur by eliminating the reduction in spending required in current law as part of the law of the united states today and will not be changed? this is baloney. surely congress will never change this. surely we won't go back on the promise we made in 2011 when we raised the debt ceiling. but anyway, this is what the associated press said about it, because the democrats want to restore $1.2 trillion in automatic spending cuts over the same period, cuts imposed by washington's failure to reach a broader budget pact. they couldn't reach an agreement so these automatic cuts occurred. murray's blueprint increases spending. you take the $1.2 trillion there and you have taxes increases over here, but the increases in spending are greater than the taxes, and they conclude that it increases spending overall. increases spending overall. while the chairman and, i guess, the budge
-span. >> in his weekly address, president obama focuses on a energy policy. and representative paul ryan gives the republican response. >> hi, everybody. as a nation, our top priority is growing our economy and creating good middle class jobs. that's why this week i'm speaking to you from the argonne national laboratory in illinois, because few areas hold as much promise as what they're focused on right here harnessing american energy. talking after years of about it, we're finally poised to take control of our energy future. we produce more oil than we have in 15 years. we import less oil than we have in 20 years. we've doubled the amount of renewable energy we generate from sources like wind and solar with tens of thousands of good jobs to show for it. we're producing more natural gas than ever before -- with hundreds of thousands of good jobs to show for it. we've supported the first new nuclear power plant since the 1970s. and we're sending less carbon pollution into the environment than we have in nearly 20 years. so we're making real progress. but over the past few weeks, we got a remin
think it compares to paul ryan's budget. >> guest: there are two major differences. they certainly go in different directions. the paul ryan budget balances in ten years and does not raise taxes. patty murray's budget never balances and raises taxes $1.5 trillion over the next decade. so what the democrats and patty murray are saying in addition to the $600 billion tax increase that obama won in january and the trillion dollars of obamacare tax increases that most americans are unaware of, they don't know that they're hitting, they haven't gotten a lot of press attention, obama never talks about the trillion dollars of tax increases starting this year for obamacare. so 1.6 plus 1.5, that's a $3 trillion dollar tax increase over the next decade if the democratic budget passed. and, of course, it never balances because they turn around and spend another, um, more money, hundreds of billions more on stimulus programs as well as other stuff. so they do more spending with more taxes. what the ryan budget does and why i think it's very interesting for the republican future is that it reform
by budget chairman paul ryan. the speaker pro tempore: pursuant to the order of the house of january 3, 2013, the chair will now recognize members from lists submitted by the majority and minority leaders for morning hour debate. the chair will alternate recognition between the parties with each party limited to one hour and each member other than the majority and minority leaders and the minority whip each, to five minutes but in no event shall debate continue beyond 11:50 a.m. the chair recognizes the gentleman from illinois, mr. quigley, for five minutes. mr. quigley: thank you, mr. speaker. mr. speaker, i rise today to call for continued reforms to our health care system. the affordable care act was a huge step in the right direction, but we can do more, because the path we're on is unsustainable. the u.s. spends approximately 18% of its g.d.p. on health, close to twice as much as other developed nations and yet we don't have better health care outcomes. health care costs are rising faster than inflation and wages, meaning they are eating a larger portion of americans' paychecks and the
patients to bear more of the program's cost. gop budget pointman paul ryan once again throwing down the gauntlet to democrats. >> we don't think it's fair to let critical programs like medicare go bankrupt. we don't think it's fair to take more from hardworking family to spend more on washington. >> the obama white house wafrted little time in criticizing the budget, when it comes to reducing the deficit the math doesn't a
's not going to get us very far. >> reporter: some republicans, such as house budget chair paul ryan, on msnbc today, also questioned whether the meetings with lawmakers are just for show. >> the question is, is he going was the so-called charm offensive a temporary, you know, poll-driven political calculation, or was it a sincere conversion to try and bring people together and start communicating? >> reporter: other republicans expressed more optimism about the talks and about the larger process of compromise. >> there are going to be places we are going to disagree, and he recognizes that we recognize it, but that doesn't mean that we can't find places where as he would say where there is overlap and try to do those things and so it was encouraging, i was glad to have him come. >> reporter: for now, house republicans are going ahead with ryan's budget proposal, unveiled yesterday, to balance the federal ledger by 2023, relying heavily on spending cuts and entitlement reforms. democrats in the senate are pushing their own plan, a 50-50 mix of spending cuts and higher tax revenues. neither pla
." the meeting followed the release of the republicans' 2014 budget by paul ryan. his plan would balance the budget in 10 years through major cuts to social programs, including the repeal president obama's healthcare law. president obama said a difference with republicans may be too wide to reach a deal. it may ultimately be the differences are just too wide, if their position is we cannot to any revenue or we can only do revenue if we get medicare or social security or gut medicaid. if that is the position, we probably will not get a deal. >> president of a mess, it's also, senate democrats released 'seir 14 -- president obama comments also came as senate democrats released their 2014 budget. colorado state lawmakers have given final approval to some of the toughest gun control laws in the country. the measures include a limit on ammunition magazines to 15 rounds, forcing gun buyers to pay for background checks, a requirement that domestic abusers surrender their guns, and a ban on obtaining concealed-carry permits online. the democratic governor has pledged to sign the measures in the
'll face within each chamber. it is what happens when paul ryan and patty murray tried to reconcile the two. and there will certainly be an attempt to do that. because these are the two packages, or this is the vehicle that the president is looking to to try to get something larger on the debt and deficit. because there are very few remaining paths for the president to try to get a grand bargain. one is the budget process that is commencing simultaneously in each chamber for the first time in a good number of years. so this is an unusual circumstance and one that provides an opportunity for the president, however, like i said, very, very different plans. >> let's talk about that. you wrote a piece that i really enjoy. in that piece you wrote, you called the budget process as we now know it, a sham of sorts. how so? >> well interesting budget doesn't have a force of law. it isn't signed by the president of the united states. we didn't have a budget from 1789 to 1921. until that time, the congress just passed appropriations bills, funded wars, civil wars, the end of slavery, et cetera, et cet
the paul ryan thing with the big asterisk and say -- >> what do you think? >> that's exactly the way you have to approach this. we do need -- first off, this issue is about 5, 10, 15 years from now, stablelizing the debt at less than 15% gdp and the essence getting entitlements under control in the out years. as part of that, you have to have tax reform and significant tax reform. and actually, simpson/bowles, a commission i served on, laid out a way to do it, got the tax rates down on the personal side to 9, 15 and 23% and the corporate to 26%. and you need to bring the corporate rate down to 24, 25, 26% and need to go to a territorial system. but you can't do that independent of the individual system, because if you have a huge gap between the top individual rate, say today it's at 42.5%, and if you took the corporate 25%, everybody started -- >> because then you have small business. small business got screwed at the expense of big businesses in the last tax bill. so you're right. so i -- look, i say, you're going to have big problems if you try to have a big personal and corporate tog
on both sides. are you telling me paul ryan will say i will propose something new? of course not. charles: he made some changes. julie, thank you very much. keeping up with america's vices and how you can make money off of them. let's check in now with jeff flock. he is in kentucky. jeff: the spirit here in kentucky. jim beam. you will be the great grandson of jim beam himself. his picture is on the bottle. that is fred. you are at the very bottom because you are the seventh generation. >> that is correct. jeff: i like it. i tell you, faded in popularity. distilled spirits are back in a big way. >> bourbon is doing good. people are discovering how flavorful it is. people are learning about it. jeff: are people just drinking more these days? are they sick of the economy and all that? >> i think they want to drink better. they are looking at more of the premium marks. jeff: there is tremendous growth in this. if we grab one of these bottles off the line here, this is a bottle that is affordable to americans. you know, champagne has to come from france. bourbon has to come from kentucky. you
